In the following case, some changes are made to protect the client’s identity.
Farideh, at the age of 14, was sent to Pakistan with her mother and uncle in the summer of 2001.
Now her father is pushing her to sponsor her husband. Farideh indicated she would rather die than
In the part of the Sexual Abuse portion, Farideh indicated there was persistent pressure to consent to rape, and she described how she was beaten while her husband performed sex and then he would throw a glass of holy water over her to purify her. All this abuse was to make her more submissive.
Farideh returned to Canada because her mother was dying.
At the hospital, she met a nurse in which she claims changed her life. She was told by her family members
History of Farideh’s background
Farideh was born in Ontario and had never been outside of her community. Farideh never had any friends
The obstacle Farideh faces
Farideh will not be able to pay market rate for rent and she will not be qualified for subsidized housing as
Farideh will be forced to distance herself from all members of her community, relatives and her family for
Among members of the community, Farideh is considered a rebellious, a very bad example for all the other girls. However despite, all these obstacles, Farideh has made up her mind to go for separation and save the future of her children, with no money and community support.
Regarding the legal barrier
If Farideh is forced by the legal system to send the children back to Pakistan, then she needs to make a
Farideh will be facing a long painful legal battle. Her situation is not as simple as child custody, child
Farideh is not the only Canadian child of misfortune. There are countless other Canadian children whose
Our expectation in Canada should be for the Canadian government to arrest and jail Farideh’s father and
But even with the Child Protection Act in place, the system has failed Farideh for not protecting her rights,
The system managed to fail her without questions asked by any of its concerned citizens. No-one from
The question is how the government of Canada could neglect Farideh and all the other children like her
The violations of children’s civil rights was done simply by implementing a legal policy in such a way that a
So crimes against Farideh became invisible and not a crime at all. It is consider part of Farideh’s culture
This unbearable cruelty to children and women should not be tolerated and must be condemned strongly.
No doubt when people hear about the case of Farideh, humanity will rise up and help will come from every
The aim is to help all the vulnerable children and women living in these isolated communities, these
The reality is that these invisible walls needs to be demolished and replaced by one secular progressive

One must not fail to remember, the reasons why these young brave girls were slaughtered in the name of

The reality is that honour killing, polygamy, child bride, forced marriage and arranged marriage and stoning have great ties with the growth of the anti-women culture and religious movement, in particular Islamic movements in the West. As soon as the advocators of this movement find the tiniest room to penetrate into legal system, more women will be subjected to violence and brutally slaughtered for refusing to follow the traditions of their families’ culture. It is hurtful to say that Canada under the policy of multiculturalism and cultural relativism has legally provided political Islam and all other organized religious sects, lots of ground to grow.
It is time to stand up firm and build a political campaign that promotes a political solution. The banner of
Only then we can end all these horrendous crimes against women and children living in these communities.

In fact these types of veils have become the banner of Islamists movement.
It should not come to anyone’s surprise to witness not only niqab and burqa but also the hijab being burnt
They know the only way out is to make religion stay a private matter for individuals, separate from the
The Niqab existed in only marginalized the Arabian Gulf region and came to light after Islamic movement

As for other forms of the veil (hijab), women should have rights to wear them or not. However when it
